Twitter didn’t stop censorship for the Thanksgiving holiday. Algorithms were hard at work flagging and labeling tweets from President Donald Trump and his campaign.
Twitter slapped labels on 63 Trump tweets since Nov. 23. When Trump tweeted: “Big Tech and the Fake News Media have partnered to Suppress. Freedom of the Press is gone, a thing of the past. That’s why they refuse to report the real facts and figures of the 2020 Election or even, where’s Hunter!” Twitter placed a label on the tweet, saying, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.” However, nowhere in the tweet or in the accompanying video was election fraud mentioned. This tweet seemed more of a criticism of Big Tech rather than a statement implying electoral fraud.
